I’m grateful for decent sleep two days in a row. I still felt fatigued both days but I can feel the sleeps were deeper.

Mystery Wound

The craziest injuries are the mystery ones. Noticed a small line of blood on my knee while drying off after a shower. It’s a cut or scratch, I don’t know. And how did it get there when I’ve been wearing long bottoms all month? I must have got it in the shower but how?


Logging water intake is a pain but it’ll make me try harder. Drank 550ml today. Such a disgrace!

Milky Woe

I had dairy milk for the first time in nearly four months. It wasn’t the sublime experience I anticipated but it was pretty nice. Adam said I could try low lactose dairy products for a bit, so I got some lactose-free milk. (And cream and cheese!) But after a breakfast of spelt bran flakes with raisins, I suffered major bloating. What is going on, then? Am I not intolerant to lactose but to casein? Is the lactose-free milk a sham? Is it the bran flakes? My damned gut is killing me softly.

I’m grateful for meditation naps, lol. They probably ruin my progress at mastering it but they feel so good!

Quote of the Day

We couldn’t decide what movie to watch tonight. Both seemed equally good and neither of us wanted to choose, so Piers said we should toss a coin. And that settled it nicely.

“The coin has spoken,” Piers said.


Buying furniture is so hard!


I planned to start designing next month’s pages in the middle of this month and it’s time I started. But I’m so terrified that I won’t be able to come up with something different that satisfies me. Every time I produce something, I feel like I’ve used up my limited creativity and I can never do as well anymore. I’ve proven myself wrong many times but the fear is always there.


Piers was so excited to find a lizard that he ran all the way upstairs to tell me. Then he caught it and realised it was a newt!

I’m grateful that Piers takes out all the rubbish and recycling and never expects me to!


I’m quite sure that some people aren’t meant to do housework and I am one of them because I always get hurt. Last night, the tip of a garlic clove pricked my finger while I was making dinner. I mean it actually drew blood! Who gets bloodied by a stupid garlic clove?! And today while making the bed, I was pulling the sheets straight to tuck the edges in when my fingers slipped and the back of my hand forcefully hit an iron rod. Who gets bruised making the bed?! FML.

Addiction Part 1

I resolved to nip my addiction to The King’s Avatar in the bud today. I’d read it during my walk 3 days in a row now. So, today – a brave sigh, headphones on, Audible on.

But. What’s this? Audible is broken. I can’t get anything to play! And Piers said he’s having similar problems with Amazon Music. No choice but to read you know what! Nooooooo!!! (But secretly: Yessssss!!)

Addiction Part 2

My resolve is real. I managed to stop myself reading it in bed so a point for Team Win!

5K spread




I’m so grateful for 5K followers! I feel like I haven’t been properly depressed since I started bullet journalling, partly because it’s fun and therapeutic, and partly because it’s harder to feel down when you feel so much love and support from thousands of people, most of whom you don’t know personally. It’s quite strange if you think about it. All the same I’ve very grateful!

Log Puzzle

We had a wood delivery today and I helped stack them in the shed while Piers wheelbarrowed them from the garage. It’s only 1.6 cubic metres and didn’t look a lot but it took us like an hour to get it all sorted.

It could have been fun stacking the logs because it’s like a puzzle, fitting the right shapes together to maximise space, but Piers was transporting them faster than I was stacking them so I had to hurry to match his speed. Otherwise, I would have been buried in logs.

He gave me a bruise one time when he tipped the logs next to me and one of them jumped up onto my ankle. Ouch.


My addiction to The King’s Avatar is getting serious! I’m now reading it during my walks and before sleeping, instead of only during meals!

Cheat Day

I am grateful for cheat days! lol! Tonight we had a surprise birthday celebration dinner for Joycey at Turtle Bay so that means yummy cocktails! Since it’s a cheat day, I also had some chocolate popcorn on the way there because I was starving. OMG chocolate popcorn is so yums I don’t know when I’ll ever get to have it again!

Loud Dinner

I love Turtle Bay but loud music really isn’t the best thing for dinner conversation. I have trouble following group conversations even normally, so in places where we must shout to be heard, I’m really tested!


I don’t know if I should scold Chong or thank him for getting me addicted to The King’s Avatar. It’s such an amazing story I can’t get enough of it. Luckily the web novel has 1800 chapters and it’s still ongoing! But I read it on my phone while doing my walk today, which is very naughty, but I really needed to find out how it went and I wasn’t going to have any time the rest of the day to read it!


My favourite bullet journaller @christina77star mentioned me today!
